Ambient dialogue[edit]

Commander Vik Tailbiter: Will your villages send warriors?
Quaggan Emissary: Quaggan is here to do what quaggan can.
Commander Vik Tailbiter: Huh! I didn't realize you were a warrior.
Quaggan Emissary: Are you here to save your people, too?
Hunting by Moonlight: I'm here to execute Koda's will. If anything, little wise one, our arrival will save you and everyone else.
Quaggan Emissary: Does not understand, but quaggan likes you anyway.
Priory Arcanist: I'm interested in how this Koda spirit guides you.
Hunting by Moonlight: It may take several lifetimes before you start understanding. We are as close to divinity as you can get without transcending from this world.
Priory Arcanist: Divinity? Really?
Hunting by Moonlight: Our leaders, Claw and Voice, are intertwined. One is the body, one the spirit. We need both to absorb Koda's will.
Pact Crusader: Those huge ships that the kodan have are magnificent. It's almost enough to make me learn shipbuilding.
Priory Scribe: And where would you sail? Look at how much trouble they're in, even with their floating fortresses.
Pact Crusader: Ah, this trouble won't last forever.
Priory Scribe: Our lives pass quickly, and though the Eternal Alchemy can wait for more peaceful times, we cannot.
Priory Scribe: Well, geologically speaking, the water is new to the area. This used to be mountains.
Pact Crusader: I spit on your "geolocistical." The world doesn't change like that.
Priory Scribe: Dwarves? Mines? Shiverpeaks? History? Do you know nothing?
Pact Crusader: Relax. Our storytellers say the same thing. I'm just bored. And you're endlessly entertaining.
Priory Scribe: Too damn cold.
Pact Crusader: Deal with it, you sniveling snotbag. You're like a weak little sapling in the middle of a powerful forest of towering trees that can smash you with just one branch.
Priory Scribe: You went on too long there. You could've just said "deal with it" and I would've gotten the message.
Whispers Lightbringer: Do the kodan make you nervous?
Pact Crusader: Nervous? (laugh)
Pact Crusader: Only if they refuse some good-natured sparring. Then I'd wonder about 'em.
Vigil Quartermaster: There are many in the legions who still hate those like me.
Whispers Lightbringer: Like you?
Vigil Quartermaster: Lion's Arch charr. Apparently, we're not traditional enough. Or violent enough.
Whispers Lightbringer: Ridiculous!
